196. The Lord of Life Is Risen

7.6.7.6.D.
1
The Lord of life is risen,
 
Has left the darksome grave,
 
And, death by Him abolished,
 
He's mighty now to save;
 
And we with Him are risen,
 
The fruit of all His toil,
 
The firstfruits of His harvest,
 
His suffering's richest spoil.
2
The Lord of life is seated
 
At God's right hand on high,
 
God's just and righteous answer
 
To grace which stooped to die;
 
In Him we too are seated,
 
Oh blessed, wondrous grace!
 
Accepted and belovèd,
 
In Him, in sonship's place.
3
The Lord of life is coming
 
To perfect all His grace;
 
To take His blood-bought people
 
To fill their heavenly place;
 
Oh, with what joy ascending
 
We'll meet Him in the air,
 
To dwell with Him in glory
 
And His blest image bear.
